Use a condom: It is a good idea to always use two methods of contraception, one of which (the condom) also helps protect you from getting a sexually transmitted infection. Since the pill is only about 98% effective, even with perfect use, using a condom every time provides a back-up method. When you are not a "perfect" user (who is?!), condoms will give you extra protection from pregnancy. ...Read more

Desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control--is it good?

Desogen (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control--is it good?

Not my 1st choice: I do not like that pill, and it has 30mcg of estrogen and it is 21 days. There are many pills that have less estrogen which is better- less chance for estrogen related side effects. My number one pill i prescribe is loloestin, it only has 10 mcg estrogen which is safer and it has 24 active pills and then 2 estrogen pills so only 2 placebo pills , so you get lighter periods and less chance of a cys. ...Read more
